DoVE sees growing demand for services Director believes more domestic violence victims are aware of the nonprofit By NATALIE JOHNSON Staff Writer

Vashon’s anti-domestic violence program has seen its number of clients grow significantly this year, prompting organizers to beef up fundraising efforts for services they say are critical for many islanders.

The DoVE Project — short for Domestic Violence Ending — will hold a fundraiser at Saucy Sisters Pizza next Tuesday, when a portion of the evening’s proceeds will go to the nonprofit. “It’s not that the problem is getting worse, it’s that more people are hearing about DoVE and coming to talk to us and getting the support we provide,” said Elizabeth Archambault, who became the organization’s executive director earlier this year. “Because of that, we would also like to ask for community support.” DoVE was founded a little over two years

ago, filling a void left after a Tukwila-based program, DAWN, pulled its Vashon services in 2009. Partnering with Vashon Youth & Family Services (VYFS), DoVE doubled its number of clients between 2011 and 2012, providing a crisis hotline, survivor support groups, one-onone support and safety planning for victims, as well as assistance with emergency housing, childcare and legal needs. The organization is on its way to more than doubling its clients again in 2013, Archambault SEE DOVE, 5

Mukai event aims to raise awareness Several groups sponsor gathering, say action is needed By NATALIE JOHNSON

REMEMBERING THE FALLEN

Staff Writer

At Monday’s Memorial Day ceremony at the Vashon Cemetery, a large group of islanders gathered to honor and remember military men and women who lost their lives serving the country. American Legion Commander Chris Gaynor says the island’s annual ceremony is a small-town service that has a personal feel. “We all know each other,” he said. “We’re all connected to families who have lost a member.” For more photos and information about the event, see page 13.

New film explores Vashon’s debate over vaccinations By SUSAN RIEMER Staff Writer

Vashon is frequently in the spotlight for the high number of island families that do not fully vaccinate their children, and now the issue has come to the big screen in a documentary that will play on the island this weekend. A discussion with the filmmaker and islanders featured in the film will follow the Sunday screening. “Everybody’s Business,” a film by graduate student Laura Green, focuses not on the science of vaccines, but on how personal choices about whether to vaccinate affect individuals and their relationships

with one another. “I wanted to look at the debate itself and how it affected the community,” Green said. “I wanted to see how you can have this disagreement and still be a community.” In the United States, the film notes, Washington has the highest number of people who choose not vaccinate their children, and in Washington, Vashon has one of the highest “opt-out” rates. Green was working on her master’s degree at the film program at Stanford University and researching potential subjects for a documentary when she SEE FILM, 18

Several organizations concerned about the state of the Mukai farmhouse and garden hope a large gathering outside the historic site this weekend will help draw attention to the property, which they say is not being properly preserved. “The whole place, I think, is in danger of falling apart eventually,” said Bruce Haulman, a board member of Friends of Mukai, the group spearheading efforts to see the property revitalized and a sponsor of this weekend’s event. “(Organizations) have done this with other properties around the state. It’s been very significant to get local focus on what the issues are and spur movement to get the property preserved,” he said. Meanwhile, Mary Matthews, director of Island Landmarks, the nonprofit that owns the farmhouse, said she, too, will be at the site on Saturday to open the grounds to visitors, tell Island Landmarks’ side of the story and recruit new members to the nonprofit. She’s currently creating a handout to make available that she said refutes some of the Friends of Mukai’s claims, and she’s planning a three-day open house for the following weekend, when the house will be opened to visitors. “I think there’s a lot of misinformation that’s been said to the public about what’s going on there, our objectives and the past,” Matthews said.

Vashon HealthWatch, the island group that organized last month’s well-attended meeting with representatives from the Franciscan Health System and Highline Medical Center, will hold another public meeting tomorrow. The Franciscan system now operates the Vashon Health Center. Previously, Highline had administered the clinic for more than a decade, but sought a partner because of financial strains and ultimately affiliated with the Franciscans. The Franciscans, however, are part of a large Catholic system, and critics have voiced concerns about the influence of Catholic theology on health care on Vashon and beyond, particularly regarding reproductive health and end-of-life issues. At April’s meeting, several islanders expressed interest in continued involvement with the issue, said Kate Hunter, one or the meeting’s organizers, and members of the group believe it’s time to have a follow-up conversation. “We feel obligated to keep people informed and maybe take action,� Hunter said. At tomorrow’s meeting, islanders can apply to be part of a Vashon health care oversight committee being organized by island activist May Gerstle, and Hunter will

speak about organizing at the state level, she said. All people are welcome, Hunter noted, and organizers hope to hear people’s ideas related to Catholic-controlled health care. “We want to be open to ideas people bring to the meeting,� Hunter said. “Other people may have bright ideas we have not thought of.� She also noted that Vashon HealthWatch wants to be true to its name and pay close attention to health care at Vashon’s clinic, even though officials say services will remain unchanged. “We want to watch and see what happens at the clinic,� she said. “Will people be denied services?� Possibilities for how to do this may also be discussed. According to Hunter, the legal director of the American Civil Liberties Union of Washington had hoped to attend and address Catholic health care mergers statewide, including the recent announcement of the affiliation between PeaceHealth and the University of Washington. She is not able to attend because of a scheduling conflict, but Hunter said she will poll people at the meeting to gauge interest in inviting her at another time. The meeting will be from 7 to 9 p.m. Thursday at Chautauqua Elementary School. For more information, call Kate Hunter at 463-5117.

Kindergarten teacher caps off a favorite Chautauqua program By ELIZABETH SHEPHERD Staff Writer

Jamie Olive is only 6 years old, but he already knows that a peregrine falcon can fly as fast as a cheetah can run. Jamie, along with his classmates in Pam Haulman’s kindergarten class at Chautauqua Elementary School, also knows that peregrine falcons, as well as a whole host of other feathered, furry and fishy creatures, are endangered animals, worthy of special protection and care. It’s all part of a special classroom unit on animal conservation that Haulman began teaching in 1992, when she worked at Edmonds Elementary School. When Haulman was hired in 2000 to teach kindergarten on Vashon, she brought the project here. Now, Haulman is retiring, and along with her, the program. Every year, for more than a dozen years, each of Haulman’s pint-sized island students has been assigned a different endangered animal to study and draw, and each has also given a presentation to his or her entire class about that animal. Haulman has also annually created note cards and notepads that show off the children’s drawings. Parents have gone out and sold those products, netting a considerable amount of money to adopt endangered animals at local zoos and fund other animal conservation projects. Haulman estimates that over the years, she and her students have raised close to $50,000 to donate to the cause of protecting endangered species. The project culminates each year with a field trip, when Haulman takes her students to a zoo to see some of the creatures they have studied. According to Haulman, a petite 66-year-

Haulman, who is retiring, put on the program for the last time this year. old teacher who doesn’t stand much taller than some of the children in her classroom, the project has always been meaningful to her students. “Everyone learns a little bit about their fellow students’ animals,” she said. “And they always associate that animal with that child. It sticks with them — it’s really cool that they can remember that.” Community support of the project, Haulman said, has also been strong. “People on Vashon are environmentally aware,” she said. “And this is a community of artists that value our primitive drawings.” On a recent Wednesday afternoon,

Telling Stories: A Speaker Series by and about Vashon Locals

Haulman’s classroom was buzzing with excitement as her students and a few parents gathered to take a look at this year’s notepads, just delivered from the printer. Each page — 40 in all — had a drawing by a different one of Haulman’s morning and afternoon students. Their names were neatly printed next to their depictions of wildlife and fauna, including poison dart frogs, wombats, scarlet macaws, arctic foxes, Mediterranean monk seals, polar bears and many other threatened species. Most of the students were eager to talk with a classroom visitor about the animals they had drawn and studied.

Abbie Caughell pointed to her drawing of a creature from Madagascar with a heartshaped face and pointy ears. “My animal is an aye-aye,” she said. “It’s like a monkey, but it has a very long finger.” Another student, Eliza Liebo, seemed more interested in the fundraising aspect of the project. “My animal was the walrus,” she said. “Are you going to buy some notepads?” Liebo’s mother, Jenn Liebo, who was volunteering in the class that afternoon, had a different, broader perspective on the project and her daughter’s time in Haulman’s care. “There is just a sense of calm in this classroom,” Liebo said, noting the order and structure that Haulman had provided to her students as they worked on the project. “The kids can focus on what they came here to do.” This year’s endangered animal project has a special significance. After a run of more than two decades, it’s the last time Haulman will teach the unit — she’s retiring from teaching in June. After her classroom emptied of students at 3:30 p.m., Haulman had time to reflect on her 13 years at Chautauqua and her life in a small community that seemed in some ways to be almost as endangered as the animals she has taught her children about each year. “This is what I love about teaching on Vashon,” she said. “Everywhere I go, I see children and families I know. I like being down at the beach, and having them come up to me. It’s a blessing to have that, and another way of being connected to them.” To purchase notepads ($8 for a set of three, or three sets for $20), contact phaulman@vashonsd.org.

For instance, at a recent DoVE event, an audience member commented to an abuse survivor that she must have been embarrassed to tell her story in front of a group.

While island supporters have been generous — one anonymous donor recently gave $10,000 — it’s clear, Archambault said, that DoVE will need to grow its fundraising on both ends to meet the growing demand on the island. “I’m working on grants every single day,� she said. And board members hope that as more people learn about DoVE and the number of islanders it serves, more will be moved to give, perhaps starting with next week’s fundraiser at Saucy Sisters. “It doesn’t take much on the part of a number of people to make a big difference,� Beles said.

said. As of mid-May, DoVE had answered 113 hotline calls, compared with 117 during all of 2012. It had also helped 14 women file protection orders — already nearly three times the number who filed last year. In the first quarter of the year, DoVE’s trained advocates provided one-on-one assistance and safety planning to 27 individuals, compared with 32 in all of last year. And 16 women attended DoVEsponsored support groups in the first quarter of the year, compared with 17 during all of last year. “We fully expect those rates to continue to rise,� Archambault said. Archambault, a former refugee worker who moved to Vashon last year and volunteered for DoVE before taking the helm at the organization, said she didn’t know how many islanders former anti-domestic violence organizations, such as DAWN, served. But she believes DoVE’s numbers are increasing because of the work former director Tavi Black did to grow the organization, as well as the fact that more and more women and men are aware of what DoVE offers. After DAWN left, she said, women either went off-island for domestic violence support or simply didn’t get help. “If we weren’t around, they would need to go off-island, and that’s a huge barrier for a lot of people,� she said, adding that the trip is especially hard for mothers and those with low incomes.

DoVE director Elizabeth Archambault has heard countless stories of domestic violence, but even she took pause, she said, when she watched the eye-opening TED Talk “Why Domestic Violence Victims Don’t Leave.” In the online video, Leslie Morgan Steiner, a well-spoken, Harvardeducated woman, details how she fell into a trap of domestic violence and why she and women like her have a hard time getting out. If national domestic violence rates can be applied on Vashon — and Archambault believes they can — around 2,000 island women have either experienced some sort of domestic violence or are at danger of being abused. The same is true for a smaller but still surprising number of men. Indeed, a 2010 study commissioned by Vashon Youth & Family Services identified domestic violence as the second most troublesome social issue on Vashon, just behind youth substance abuse. Most islanders likely know someone who has experienced domestic abuse or could fall victim to it in the future. DoVE, which has existed for two years now, is successfully reaching abuse victims and providing solutions in situations that can seem terrifying, isolating and hopeless. Before DoVE, Archambault said, some victims likely suffered in secret because seeking off-island help was simply too big an obstacle. As DoVE’s services become more known and more utilized, the organization must also grow its budget to keep up with the demand for its crisis hotline, personal advocates, support groups and other services. With a seemingly tireless fundraiser and grant writer at the helm, we think they’ll make it this year. But we also recognize that in order to keep up, DoVE must develop a solid base of annual supporters, much like bigger organizations such as the schools foundation and Vashon Allied Arts have sought to do. We would hate to see DoVE falter like the Tukwila-based DAWN did in 2009, leaving Vashon victims without local help. If you’re able to give annually to local nonprofits, consider adding DoVE to your list. Other Vashon programs undoubtedly enrich the island, but by supporting DoVE, you could be coming to a friend or neighbor’s rescue without even knowing it. If you’re not able to give, help DoVE with your actions. Archaumbalt said one of the biggest obstacles to educating communities on domestic violence is the stigma that still surrounds the topic and the common misconceptions that victims are at fault when they stay in abusive relationships. We suspect that on Vashon there may be smart, strong women and men, just like Leslie Morgan Steiner, who struggle with this complicated issue in private. Discuss this important topic with those you know, and if you ever suspect abuse, have DoVE’s hotline number at the ready.

Bank of America

Closure will be bad for Vashon The news that Bank of America is abandoning Vashon Island is appalling. This community is more than an arbitrary pinpoint on a map. Fully one-third of the community uses Bank of America here. There is a thriving business community that makes deposits every day, not to mention regular customers. What does it say to those who wish to open a new business here to lose the possibility of financial backing from a major banking institution? What does it

say to all the realtors here when the option for mortgages from a major bank is lost to our community? The average dollar amount for a home sale seems to be $500,000. That is not chump change. Vashon has approved and is building a $48 million dollar new school with the view of community growth. A beautiful new $18 million performing arts center will be built with islanders’ support. Two very successful lumber businesses have just been expanded here. The island is growing in thoughtful and careful ways. It is easier to keep a

the roadway. On Bank Road, east of town, there is a hill with no shoulders, creating a pinch point where cyclists have to ride along the fog line. On most of the back roads of the island, there are hills and curves that limit visibility. We simply ask motorists to look ahead and anticipate problems. Then, of course, there are the rumble strips. I promise not to belabor the point; the rumble strips got plenty of attention last summer. In simplest terms, the rumble strips have created 10 miles of road hazard for cyclists. When riding alone and with no parked cars or pedestrians, the rumble strips are no big deal other than taking away the best and cleanest riding surface just outside the fog line. When there are parked cars or pedestrians or other cyclists and the cyclist has to dodge the rumble strip and move out into the highway, motorists just have to respect the law of the land. My favorite short ride for a hot summer day? The Maury viewing platform and Luana Beach: From Portage, ride out Dockton Road to 248th (south side of the golf course), uphill to the viewing platform (highest point on Vashon or Maury, about 485 feet). Continue around and downhill on 59th S.W. to Point Robinson Road, turn right, up a little hill, down the long hill, left on Luana Beach Road and follow it back to Point Robinson Road and back downhill to Portage.

Health care

This patient was not impressed with Highline Re: Constitutional rights and the Vashon Health Center/Franciscan Health Systems. I worked in the medical field since 1974 at Children’s Hospital and administration in Washington and Hawaii. I was the assistant administrator of Vashon Health Center before Highline took over. Recently, I had some medical concerns and at the health center was assigned to a provider to regulate my health and assess my concerns. With previous cancer-related surgery in 2006 and my mother dying of cancer recently, the practitioner sent me for several screening tests. After the tests, I was diagnosed with upper skeleton pain and told that I was just “built that way.� With no further review of my concerns, I was taken via ambulance two days after Christmas with a tumor the size of a grapefruit erupting, and I almost bled to death. My blood pressure was at 248, and the EMTs took me to Highline Medical Center. I was (supposedly) stabilized and directed by the emergency room doctor to

go see one of their adjacent specialists. I was sent out of the emergency room door in my bathrobe and slippers, in the rain, to see their specialists. One was on vacation, and one was delivering babies. I have good insurance. I chose Virginia Mason for emergency surgery. My surgeon/oncologist said that I lost so much blood that I should have had a transfusion. During my career of working with hospitals, Catholic or not, I was never treated worse than Highline treated me. Currently completing my chemo with affiliate clinics and at St. Joseph’s in Tacoma, I’ve had excellent care. Never once been have I been asked to sign any documents regarding “right to life� or religion. Let’s review the salaries of the administrators at Highline and other so-called “nonprofit� hospitals.

Vashon Park District

Board action regarding caretakers causes dismay Having been a fitness instructor at the Vashon Park District for nearly four years, I have had a front-row seat to the dramas and goings-on there. My feeling of pride in being a part of this organization has continually eroded over that time. After reading your article “Caretakers at Two Parks Face Difficult Choice� (May 22) about the park board’s recent decision concerning two longtime employees and some of the board members’ rationale for the decision, my dismay has reached a new low.

Politics

Demonstrators are right, Obama should be impeached In last week’s Beachcomber, one Vashon citizen raised the question as to the proper use of one’s First Amendment rights under the Constitution. (“Demonstrators Don’t Get It,� May 22.) To become a naturalized citizen, a can-

didate for citizenship must swear under oath that he or she will, to the best of their ability, preserve, protect and defend the Constitution. I don’t believe that our founding fathers intended that foreignborn citizens should have a greater obligation and duty to defend the Constitution than citizens who acquire their citizenship through birth. That means that every citizen, whether born here nor not, has a duty and an obligation to preserve, protect and defend the Constitution to the very best of their ability whenever it is under attack and in jeopardy. It is proper to conclude then, that the highest and most honorable use of one’s First Amendment rights is when they are used to protect and defend our freedoms. Without reference to President Obama’s accomplishments or lack thereof, he has, in fact, committed egregious crimes and misdemeanors that under our Constitution require that he be impeached. I believe The Beachcomber letter to the editor has properly brought this to our attention. My hope now is that this paper will allow this topic to be aired publicly in fair and thorough discussions. Doesn’t good citizenship and honorable journalism require as much? Let me start by naming just seven categories of crime we should consider. In 300 words I cannot elaborate here. Use Google: Accessory after the fact and obstruction of justice; war crimes as defined under the Nuremberg and Geneva Conventions; contravening of the War Powers Act; contravening laws that protect whistle blowers; undermining citizens’ right to privacy; pursuing cruel and unusual punishments, and continued suspension of habeas corpus. — Mark A.

As a contract worker, the park district’s disintegration has not impacted me in nearly the same way as it has for its fulltime employees. Nevertheless, as someone who feels a strong affinity with the mission of Vashon parks, what is happening there still affects me on a deep, personal level. I have been quoted recently in this newspaper about my opinions concerning parks and especially the board of directors, which has taken the word “dysfunction� to new heights. I have tried to exercise restraint in the past, endeavoring to adopt a broad perspective concerning the actions of the Vashon Park District board and the kind of economic pressures they are under. However, after learning of the board’s recent decision, I can no longer pretend to maintain a balanced view. One board member’s quote, “We don’t want to pay someone 30 bucks an hour to open a gate� was especially horrifying. Not only is the statement inaccurate in the extreme, but it also borders on the sadistic, considering the amount of power the parks board has over the lives of its employees. Can nothing be done?

Experiences — painful, frightening and fabulous — make for good advice The class of 2013 could learn from my mishaps

REFLECTIONS By GREG WESSEL

It may come to you as a surprise, but I am nearly 49 years old this year. When one gets into this phase of life (the doldrums), one begins to think it’s time to share some wisdom with the younger generation so that they don’t make all the same stupid mistakes one made as recently as last week. Today, I’m going to share with you three important lessons I learned while getting to nearly 49. The first lesson I learned is a very basic one. When I was just 1 year old, my father built a house with a full basement. From the first floor, a wooden staircase descended to a landing about 24 inches above the level of the concrete basement floor. When I started walking, my parents warned me about the steps. I could fall down them and seriously hurt myself, they said, but did I listen? Of course, but I didn’t understand, and one day I took a head-over-heels tumble all the way to the bottom and off the landing onto the concrete. The next thing I remember is lying on a hospital table looking up at a giant ray gun pointed at my head, which I later learned was an X-ray machine. Thankfully, there have been no longterm ill effects from my fall, unless you count my 15 years as a county employee,

but I learned that when people give you advice, listen to them and understand what they are saying. They are trying to save you from yourself. Another lesson I learned came in 1993 when I was investigating magnesium metal production in Russia during the optimistic years following the collapse of the Soviet Union. My partner Fred and I had arranged to purchase a report on magnesium production from what we understood to be an agency of the Russian government. The Russians were in such need of hard currency that they were selling assets right and left, sometimes with actual government approval. We arranged to meet their representative in a posh hotel lobby near the Kremlin, and I was carrying $10,000 in cash to pay for the report. The exchange rate then was 1,000 rubles to the dollar, making my action roughly equivalent to walking into the Seattle Radisson with $10 million. We had only been seated a few moments when a striking blonde in a very short and tight dress entered the lobby. She guided

her curves directly to us, addressed us by our names in perfect English and sat down to do business. Nervously glancing at each other, Fred and I realized we were doing the dog paddle in the deep end. We were carrying a fortune in cash in a crimeridden country, and we were about to give it all to some remnant of the KGB. James Bond we weren’t, but we would never have

I learned that when people give you advice, listen to them and understand what they are saying. They are trying to save you from yourself. gotten there had we not been adventurous (or naïve) enough to take a chance. The lesson we learned was that evolution favors the bold. So get out there and try something new. The third lesson might be the most important. In 2003, I introduced myself to my future wife, who then lived in Kansas City, through an internet dating service (“Hi! My name is Greg! How do you like me so far?”). She took a shining to me (based on one photo) and was totally smitten when I agreed with her that garnet is the best gemstone. About two months later, I was meeting her at the Seattle airport

for the first time, and when I caught sight of her coming through the gate, my heart sank. “Oh my gosh!” I thought, “She’s way too pretty for me! I’ll never measure up!” But she didn’t see me the way I saw myself. She marched right up, flashed a big smile, kissed me, grabbed my arm and off we walked as if we had known each other for years. We’ve been walking together like that ever since. My point is that most people seriously underestimate themselves. My grandmother would have advised, “Don’t hide your kerosene lamp under a bushel,” partly because the bushel basket will catch fire, but also because your limitations are largely of your own making. You are living in a country where just about anything is possible, and unlike most people on the planet, you can be in charge of your own future. Don’t convince yourself you can’t do something until you’ve tried it again and again. So stand up, square those shoulders, and go where you want to go. And if where you want to go is down into the basement, watch out for that first step. — Greg Wessel is an island writer and humorist. He is also a geologist and King County employee.

Island women to share their histories Four Vashon elders will tell stories about their lives on “old Vashon� this weekend as part of Vashon Community Care’s Telling Stories speaker series. Three of the women on the panel were born and raised on Vashon, and one moved to the island in the 1950s. They will all share their histories on the island — stories that go back a long way, including during World War II, when many men were missing from the island, according to VCC’s Director of Development Linda Milovsoroff. The women on the panel for the presentation, called “How It Was,� were selected for their longevity on Vashon and their willingness to share their experiences, Milovsoroff said. Dorothy Johnson moved to the island in 1951 with her husband, who worked for Boeing. She was a health care advocate who worked to start the Vashon Health Center and helped launch Granny’s Attic to support it. Barbara Steen was born and raised on Vashon and was instrumental in starting the Vashon-Maury Island Heritage

Museum. She has vivid memories of Japanese families leaving the island for internment. Dorothy Morgan was a descendant of the Ward and Snow families, who homesteaded on Dilworth Point. Her grandparents donated land for the United Methodist Church, which was the first church on Vashon. Elsa Mae Williams was one of six children; her mother died when Williams was 18. Later, her husband started Williams Heating. VCC began its speaker series in 2010, Milovsoroff said, so that local elders could share the stories for the community’s benefit. At the panel discussion, which will be moderated by Charlotte Tiencken, Milovsoroff said historic pictures of Vashon will be on display. The event will be at 4 p.m. Sunday at Bethel Church. Ticket sales are by donation and are available at the Vashon Bookshop and Vashon Community Care. — Susan Riemer

County to hold open house on guardrails, invites comments The King County Roads Services Division will install, replace and remove guardrails on 16 Vashon roads this fall as part of an ongoing safety program. An open house about the project will take place from 6:30 to 8 p.m. Wednesday, June 5, at Chautauqua Elementary School. “We look forward to talking about this with

anyone who wants to come,� said Alice Ann Wetzel, a community relations planner with the county Department of Transportation. The majority of the project will involve installing new guardrails, Wetzel said. She noted that county representatives worked with the fire department, cyclists, equestrians and

pedestrians prior to crafting their proposal, which is available online. To see where on the island the guardrails will be installed, visit www. kingcounty.gov/roadscip and type “guardrail� in the search box. To comment on the project, call Wetzel at 684-1154 or email her at aliceann. wetzel@kingcounty.gov.

A roaming artist returns, with a show about home

Flute and guitar at Bethel

hat makes a house a home? And can home be a feeling as much as an actual place?

John Schneiderman Salish Sea Early Music Festival will present a concert, “Giulianiad,” at 7:30 p.m. tonight at Bethel Church. Admission is by donation, with a suggested amount of $15 or $20. There is free admission for anyone 18 and younger. The concert will present a flute and guitar duo repertoire, with works composed by virtuoso Mauro Guiliani and others. John Schneiderman, a renowned player of lute, guitar and many other plucked instruments, will play guitar, and Jeffrey Cohan will play an eight-keyed flute made in London in 1820. For more information, visit www. salishseafestival.org.

Soul Senate comes to town The Seattle band Soul Senate will play their music at 9 p.m. Saturday at the Red Bicycle Bistro. It’s a free show that is for all ages until 11 p.m. and 21 and older after that. The seven-piece band, said concert organizer Pete Welch, plays “high-energy, adrenaline-inducing, audience-oriented, original soul and funk party powerhouse.”

Time for a pops concert McMurray Middle School and Vashon High School will present their annual Pops Concert at 7 p.m. Friday in the VHS gym. Bill Quehrn will return again this year as emcee, and the bands will be playing music from the stage, screen, and radio. The concert will also include an arrangement of music from the video game Skyrim by one of the band members, Nick Amundsen. Admission is free.

Rock out at the movies A new series of concert films on the big screen will launch at 9:30 p.m. Friday, when Vashon Theatre shows “Paul McCartney & Wings: Rockshow 1976.” The film will take viewers back to the 1970s, when McCartney started his epic Wings over the World tour. From this tour came both the “Wings over America” triple live album and the 1980 concert film “Rockshow,” filmed at the Kingdome in Seattle. The film that will be shown on Friday is a restored, remastered and remixed version of that film. Tickets are $9 and $8 for the show. Upcoming films in the series will include “Led Zeppelin: Celebration Day 2007 London” in June, “Rolling Stones; Charlie is my Darling — Ireland 1965” in July, and “Hendrix 1970: Live at Woodstock” in August.

A new show, performed this weekend as part of Vashon Allied Arts’ New Works Series, aims to answer these questions and more. It’s the latest theatrical project of local performer and theater educator Mik Kuhlman, who is returning to Vashon after spending eight months living and working in New York City. Kuhlman’s “House #30” will have two performances this weekend at Vashon Allied Arts’ Blue Heron building. The show, a solo piece completely written and performed by Kuhlman, tells the story of one of 60 houses the nomadic performer has lived in — complete with true ghost stories, poetry, clowning, audience interaction and a live musical score by Gretta Harley. The house the show is about, Kuhlman said, is a place that continues to shape her life. “It was a place I lost in a day, a place I rented that I identified as home,” she said. “But in losing it, it also gave me courage to travel the world.” Kuhlman, a former member of UMO Ensemble, has indeed careened across continents during her almost three-decades long career, grabbing gigs as a mime, clown and guerrilla theater artist. In doing so, she’s worked and played with an impressive array of international artists. She’s also supported herself with other kinds of work, from toiling as a professional voice-over artist to something closer to her heart — educating other aspiring performers in a variety of international settings. But Vashon, she said, is a place she’s always eager to return. “I don’t own a home here, but I carry the community with me

wherever I go,” she said. This summer, Kuhlman will be back in residence on Vashon, offering not only her new show, but also a full slate of educational theater classes and intensive workshop experiences for performers of all ages. For several years, Kuhlman has helmed Camp Mik, a popular camp for kids that is once again scheduled for several sessions this summer. And new this year will be a Camp Mik for adults, offered both as a one-day exploratory experience and a weekend intensive. But first, Kuhlman said, comes “House #30.” To ready the show for its premiere on Vashon, she worked from New York, carrying on a long-distance collaboration with islander Patricia Toovey, whose role in the show Kuhlman defines as that of “visual conceptualist.” Toovey is perhaps best known on Vashon for her design work on UMO Ensemble productions. “Patricia and I have been juiced in this whole process, interweaving our muses to bring this personal and universal story to life,” Kuhlman said. The actress also counts the venue where she will perform “House #30” as another collaborator in the piece. “The Blue Heron — itself an old house, is gracing the stage with me,” she said, explaining that the entire gallery and performance space of the building will be combined so that her show can be presented in-theround. She said it was especially meaningful to explore the theme of “home” in affiliation with Vashon Allied Arts — an organization she called an anchor for her work throughout the years. To perform at the Blue Heron — a place that will cease to be a theater once VAA’s proposed Vashon Center for the Arts is built — is a special opportunity, she said.

Mik Kuhlman will perform a new show, “House #30,” this weekend as part of Vashon Allied Arts’ New Works Series.

“I can kind of feel this theater in the process of becoming a ghost,” she said. “Ten years from now, people won’t know that it was once a performance center.” And although Kuhlman has done other solo shows before, this is the first time she has created a show based on her own experiences. “I’ve always told other people’s stories,” she said. “This is the first time I’m writing the story with words first and not my body, going from the personal to the universal instead of the other way around.”

“House #30” shows at 8 p.m. Saturday and 4 p.m. Sunday at the Blue Heron. Tickets, $12 and $15, are on sale at www.vashonalliedarts.org or by calling 4635131. The show is geared for adults due to occasional dark subject matter; children will be admitted at their parents’ discretion. For information about Kuhlman’s upcoming camps and workshops at Hanna Barn, email sally@sallyjfox. com or mik@mikkuhlman. com, or visit Mik Kuhlman Productions on Facebook.

Islanders can shake their booties at a hot new dance club Islanders don’t have to trek to Seattle anymore when they get the urge to boogaloo beneath a spinning disco ball at a dance club. On Friday, Open Space for Arts & Community will be transformed into Club O — a dancing opportunity that will become a regular monthly event at the space, said cofounder David Godsey. “So here’s a place to go and chill out with friends while the music rolls on and dance if you want to,” Godsey said. “Or if you’re hard core, you can get out there on the floor for hours and experience death-by-dancing. It’s all good.” Godsey said current plans are for Club O

to happen every last Friday of the month, with different nights offering different kinds of music — everything from ’60s, ’70s, ’80s, hip-hop and fresh club music to electronica and trance. The inspiration to open the club came to Godsey while waiting on a ferry dock, he said. “I spent lots of time in ferry lines over the years, going back and forth to Seattle to find decent dance clubs with really good music,” he said. “I spent as much time traveling back and forth as I did dancing. And I realized, why not make a place here on Vashon to really dance?” DJ Michael Whitmore will reign at Club

O’s opening on Friday, spinning selections from his massive vinyl collection of more than 6,000 45s and 3,000 LPs, with some of the records dating back as far as the 1940s and the earliest days of rock and roll. Whitmore has been spinning his stuff at clubs and parties for more than two decades, and he’s also worked at some of the top record stores on the West Coast, including the island’s own music shop, Vashon Island Music. The fun starts at 8 p.m. Friday at Open Space, 18870 103rd Ave. S.W. Tickets, $5, will be sold at the door. —Elizabeth Shepherd

High schoolers put on a play

Book reading: New novel tells of drama on the high seas Vashon resident, fisherman and writer Richard Bard recently published “West of Spencer,” a novel that draws on his experience in the salmon trolling industry. Bard has a long history as a journalist, and some years ago published a novella, but this is his first full-length work of fiction. He’ll read from the book at 6 p.m. Wednesday, June 5, at Vashon Bookshop. “I always wanted to try a novel,” Bard said. “But until I sold my boat a few years ago, I was too caught up in actually fishing to devote the time.” Bard says he chose as a subject what he knows best, and believes “West of Spencer” accurately portrays the often rough and dangerous life aboard an ocean-going fishing boat, as well as on the docks and in the cafes and bars of a fishing town. But he wanted it to go deeper than “The Deadliest Catch” with salmon instead of crab. So even

though there’s plenty of high winds, rough seas and blood on the deck, it’s also a love story in which the lead character, Bo, struggles to figure out why he keeps destroying all his relationships. The search for understanding goes even deeper as Bo questions how he turned out the way he is: Was it a practical joke by some trickster of a creator? Bard said he wanted the story to have a lighter side, too. “I had some great friendships in the fishing fleet — it’s full of extreme, really entertaining characters — and I hope I was able to recreate some of them in a fictional way.” “West of Spencer” is available in bookstores in Alaska, Washington and elsewhere, and in e-book form. With the tide of easy-to-publish books becoming a flood, Bard is prepared for the challenge of getting it noticed. Early reviews have been good, he says, which could help.

The garden of islanders Charles and Nancy Roehm.

Go green at the garden tour The final day to purchasing discounted tickets to Vashon Allied Arts’ Garden Tour is Friday, May 31. On June 1, the ticket price increases from $20 to $25. The tour, an annual event produced by VAA, will take place on June 22 and 23, and include walkthroughs of five local gardens, from a 17-acre “Northwest formal” style

garden to a five-acre garden designed around drought-tolerant plants. The tour also includes talks by landscape professionals, music in the gardens and a garden art market. Tickets can be purchased at Vashon Allied Arts, Heron’s Nest, www.vashon alliedarts.org and many Island businesses.

The final high school show ever to be performed in the current Vashon High School theater will bow at 7:30 p.m. Friday, June 7, when a group of top theater students take the stage in Beth Henley’s well-known play, “Crimes of the Heart.” The show will also be performed at 7:30 p.m. Saturday, June 8, and 2 p.m. Sunday, June 9, at VHS; then it is curtains for a theater that has seen hundreds of high school performances since it was built in 1973. A new theater is already rising in the construction zone of the new high school building, which will open next year. Appropriately enough, high school theater teacher Stephen Floyd has chosen as the old theater’s last play a work that tells the story of the passage of time, and how a family changes and grows after challenging events. The Tony Awardwinning play, which made its Broadway debut in 1981, tells the story of three sisters

who reunite at their grandfather’s home in Mississippi after one of them shoots her abusive husband. Floyd describes it as “infused with pathos and comedy.” The show stars six highschool thespians, all juniors and seniors, who earned their parts in a competitive audition. The actresses playing the sisters are Maya McTighe, who recently played the starring role of Vanessa in the VHS production of “In the Heights,” Meghan Murphy, who played Abuela Claudia in that show, and Hailey Quackenbush, who played Camila Rosario in “In the Heights.” Other cast members include Mara Burns, Devan Barnes and Tanner Montague. These actors, too, had major parts in “In the Heights.” Tickets, $10 for Friday and Saturday evening shows, and $5 for the Sunday matinee, are on sale at the high school office and Vashon Bookshop.

Calling all artists to be in a show A call has been issued for artists to submit work to the second annual art show held in conjunction with the Vashon Sheepdog Classic. The show, “The Beauty and Value of Farm Life,” is open to artists ages 16 and older, working in

any medium. Artwork must be able to be wall hung. The show will open on Sept. 6 at the Two Wall Gallery; the deadline for applications is Aug. 5. For information, visit www. va shonsheepdogcla ssic . com.

Islanders remember those who served the country Vashon’s American Legion Post 159 led the annual Memorial Day celebration at the Vashon Cemetery on Monday. The event, despite the wet weather, drew about 70 spectators, according to post Commander Chris Gaynor, who noted that Vashon has many families that have served in the military for generations. The Color Guard (bottom right) led the procession, followed by members of Boy Scout Troop 294 (at left); several islanders representing Vashon organizations placed wreaths at the veterans’ monument, including Ron Garrison (bottom center), a Gulf War veteran and member of the Veterans of Foreign Wars (VFW). Garrison also spoke on behalf of the VFW. Lisa Devereau read a letter from islander Zach Stackhouse, who is attending The Citadel, and Fire Chief Hank Lipe (bottom left) delivered the keynote address. The ceremony also included the singing of the national anthem by Vashon High School student Maya McTighe and ended with taps and the retiring of the colors. Photos by Paul Chen

Track athletes rise to the top at State

Equestrians will show off many skills at horse expo

Islanders who compete for private schools also brought home medals

Accomplished and armchair equestrians may want to head to Paradise Ridge Park this weekend for a day-long event that will raise funds for equestrian improvements at the horse park. Throughout the event, called Vashon Horse Expo: The Day of the Horse, there will be educational and entertaining horse events, as well as live music, food — including a multitude of homemade pies — and an array of booths featuring everything from horse tack to arts and crafts, according to Emily Wigley, one of the event organizers. Wigley is also a member of the event’s host group, the Vashon Maury Island Horse Association. One of the day’s highlights will be the Jiocké Bareback Riders, who travel and perform with such groups as the Ringling Brothers Cirucs, Cavalia and the Arabian Nights, Wigley said. They will perform between 3:30 and 4 p.m. The Cascade Vaulters, a regional club, will be another highlight, according to Wigley. They demonstrate the art and sport of gymnastics on horseback and will have repeated demonstrations throughout the day. “We’re really exited to have them,” Wigley said. There will also be dressage demonstrations narrated by a dressage expert and a jumping demonstration, which Wigley said she expects to be enjoyable for riders and nonriders alike. For the youngest in the crowd, Dreamland Ponies from off-island will provide pony rides and photos. While admission to the event is free, donations will be accepted and put to good use, Wigley said. Island equestrians would like to see some fully enclosed stalls at the park as well as improvements to the arena’s riding surface, and the day’s proceeds may help bring those wishes to fruition. The event will be from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. at Paradise Ridge Park.

Three Vashon High School athletes competed in the 1A state track and field championships last weekend, and one returned with a medal from the prestigious tournament. Two young islanders who attend private schools in Seattle also put forward award-winning performances at State, which took place at Eastern Washington University in Cheney. The Vashon standout at the event was easily Abigail Kim, a Seattle Christian freshman who won all three events she competed in, beating mostly older athletes from around the state. Kim claimed the victory in the girls 100meter dash in a photo finish with Amarah Nicholson from Medical Lake, as they both sprinted to a time of 12.68. Kim had a bigger margin of victory over the same competitor in the 200-meter dash to take the state title in 25.54, a personal record for the sprinter. She also stood on top of the podium with a first place finish in the long jump, with a leap of 18 feet, 4.5 inches. Kim, who competed at the Junior Olympics last year, plays on an elite club soccer team and recently won the state 1A soccer tournament with her Seattle Christian team, said she almost didn’t join the track team at her high school this year because she was so busy with soccer. She’s glad she did, she said, as she enjoyed going to State and especially enjoyed competing alongside her good friend and former McMurray Middle School teammate Annika Hille. “When we were in middle school we

Vashon residents Abigail Kim, who competes for Seattle Christian, and Graham Peet, who competes for The Northwest School, also medaled at State. both wanted to go to State together, so we both got to go,” Kim said. “She’s good, too.” Hille, a freshman at VHS, placed 12th in the triple jump with a best of 32 feet, 9 inches. She also placed 13th in the long jump with a leap of 15 feet, 2 inches. Sophomore Graham Peet, who attends The Northwest School, brought home a medal from State. He placed fourth in the boys 3,200 meters with a time of 9:50. VHS senior Landon Summers finished out his high school career on the big stage in Cheney, but missed qualifying for the finals in both the 110-meter high hurdles and 300-meter hurdles by just one place.

WILLIAMS HEATING Proudly Sponsors… PIRATE

Brooks Benner VHS Senior • Soccer Brooks has great passion for the game and his hard work and leadership on the field has been a key factor in the team’s success. As a cocaptain this year, Brooks moved from Keeper into the defense where his work ethic and dedication made a tremendous impact. Coach Sergiei says “Brooks makes a big difference when he is in the game, he leads by example. We wish Brooks well in his next chapter next year at Skidmore College.”

The lone Pirate to brandish a medal at State was junior Garret Starr. Starr made the finals in the boys triple jump and placed eighth overall, allowing him to bring home a piece of hardware. He had a best measurement of 40 feet, 4 inches. After the tournament, Starr said he was pleased with his performance, as it had been his goal to place in the top eight at State. “The 1A meet itself was a great atmosphere and very intense,” he said. — Kevin Ross is a track and field coach at Vashon High School.

SPORTS BRIEFS Baseball team to hold third annual Jim Martin alumni game Vashon High School baseball volunteers are calling all Pirate players, past and present, to dust off their cleats, oil their knees and get ready for the third annual Jim Martin Memorial Alumni Game, slated for 1 p.m. Sunday at Jim Martin Field at Vashon High School. Last year VHS baseball alumni ranging in age from 20 to over 50 years old came from around the region to participate in the game. The main event will again be a seven-inning game pitting the current Pirate varsity team, coached by Steve Hall, against the Pirate alumni, coached by Joe Wald.Â

“It’s always great to see how much the alumni have grown and matured,� Hall said. Jim Martin, a beloved baseball coach and volunteer, died in 2011. Each spring since, the Pirates have held an alumni game in his honor. This year, team coordinator Rita Allman is asking for help in getting the word out to former players. “Every year we struggle to find current contact information,� she said. Allman said those with leads on Vashon baseball alumni should let them know about the game and ask them to contact her at rita55@wavecable.com.

Rowers raise funds for Nationals The Vashon Island Junior Crew is raising money to help qualifying team members travel to the national competition this month and will hold a car wash this weekend for the cause. Sixteen of Vashon’s junior rowers, an unprecedented number, qualified to compete in the US Rowing Youth National Championships, slated for June 7 to 9 in Oak Ridge, Tenn. Club volunteers say qualifying for Nationals was a tremendous accomplishment for the young athletes, but they’re now faced with raising a substantial amount of money to travel to the competition.

The cost of the event is estimated at about $1,500 per rower. The team will need to pay for the rowers’ expenses: airfare, boat rentals, regatta fees, coaching expenses, room and board while at the competition and meals, adding up to about $25,000 total. Rowers will hold a car wash from 9:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. Saturday in the Vashon Market parking lot, where there will also be a bake sale. Islanders can also donate online at vashoncrew.com/ support-crew or by mailing a check with “Nationals 2013� in the memo line to VIJC, P.O. Box 79, Vashon, WA 98070.

Former Garfield coach selected for VHS football By SUSAN RIEMER Staff Writer

A new coach will lead the Vashon Pirates football team this year and was set to begin yesterday, when summer practices got under way. Kelvin Goliday, a football coach with more than 12 years of experience, led a large field of applicants for the job, said Vashon High School athletic director Stephanie Spencer. Former head football coach Clay Eastly stepped down from the program earlier this year. The Vashon Island School District board of directors unanimously confirmed Goliday’s appointment last week. The selection committee — Spencer, a student, two coaches and a parent — was impressed with Goliday’s charisma, breadth of experience and his interest in staying on Vashon long-term to develop a program, Spencer said. “He seemed like a good fit for our needs,� she said. Goliday, 38 and a former Marine, most recently served as the head football coach at Garfield High School in Seattle and prior to that served in a variety of football coaching positions at both the high school and college levels. In an interview last week, Goliday said he was drawn to Vashon for its community. He grew up in the small town of Oxford, Miss., he said, and believes small communities are more tightknit than larger places. “It’s what I have always wanted,� he said. Acknowledging that Vashon’s small football team has struggled in recent years, he noted that it is normal for

Kelvin Goliday teams to go through cycles. “It’s something most high school coaches deal with,� he said. To strengthen the team, he said, he hopes to draw from as many students as possible and will work to do that in part by how he leads. “It’s important to make it as fun as it can be,� he said. He also plans to rely on simple techniques that he knows work, he said, and possibly partner with former coach Clay Eastly on developing a youth football program so that players enter high school with more experience behind them. In recent years, issues about football’s safety, particularly head injuries and the effects of multiple concussions on players, have frequently been in the news. Goliday said he has paid a lot of attention to this issue and coaches accordingly. “We teach the safest forms of tackling that we can,� he said. “There is not a lot of high-impact tackling.� Most injuries happen in practice, he noted, as more time is spent in practice than in games. To help minimize the risk of injury, once the season is under way, his teams do not practice with full contact, he said. The majority of Goliday’s

experience is at the high school level, according to his resume, but also includes a year serving as the defensive assistant for the Sound Shockers, a semi-pro football team and two years at the college level. But he prefers coaching high schoolers, he said. “I get more enjoyment out of high school. You do it because you love it� he said. In 2011, in his most recent coaching position at Garfield High School, Goliday made a decision in a game that resulted in the team forfeiting and a suspension for him. According to news reports at the time, he said he had been concerned about slow calls throughout the game and pulled his team off the field for a timeout after a fumble recovery was awarded to the opponent. His players did not return to the field after two minutes, and Goliday was given delay-of-game penalties and ejected from the game. At the time, Goliday said, his primary concern was for player safety — a position he still stresses and says was lost in the flurry attention to

the incident. “At the moment, I was trying to do the right thing,� he said. Though many players’ parents still support his decision, he said, in retrospect, he wishes he handled the situation differently, but he learned from the experience. “If I make a mistake, I reflect on it and correct what I did wrong,� he said. Currently, Goliday is finishing his master’s degree in nonprofit management from Argosy University in Seattle. His wife Meaghan recently completed her degree in secondary education and will look for a teaching position for this fall. She grew up on Vashon, he noted, and her parents, Michael and Marcy McCarthy, still live in Gold Beach. Kelvin, Meaghan and their 2-year-old son Giovanni live in Seattle, but they hope to move to Vashon or at least closer to the island, he said. In the meantime, though, he is happy to take on the commute. “It’s love,� he said.

They felt it was a personal decision at the time, she said, and did not consider herd immunity. In the film, Assink recounts how a woman in her neighborhood recently had a baby and asked her to keep her younger daughter away for a few weeks because she was not vaccinated.

MUKAI CONTINUED FROM 1

comes on the heels of news that the property has been added to the Washington Trust for Historic Preservation’s list of most endangered historic properties in the state. The farmhouse was nominated by the Friends of Mukai. “I think it’s an important recognition that the Mukai place does matter and people are aware it hasn’t been taken care of in the way we originally intended it to be taken care of,” Haulman said. “We wanted to focus attention on that.” Haulman said it’s not uncommon for such awareness-raising events to take place at properties after they’ve been added to the Washington Trust’s endangered list. This weekend’s event is sponsored by the friends group and the Washington Trust, as well as the Vashon-Maury Island Heritage Association and 4Culture, King County’s cultural arts organization and one of the funders that helped Island Landmarks purchase the house a decade ago. The event, to take place on the street outside the farmhouse, will open with several speakers, including Mary Matsuda Gruenwald, a former islander and JapaneseAmerican author who knew B.D. Mukai, the farmhouse’s former owner. A small street fair will feature booths with educational displays, food and Japanese arts and crafts, and several local bands will provide music. At 2 p.m., organizers will stage a photo of everyone in attendance standing outside the farmhouse with a banner reading “This Place Matters.” Organizers say King County Councilmember Joe McDermott is expected to attend the event, and Sen. Sharon Nelson and county Executive Dow Constantine have also been invited.

WWW.VASHONBEACHCOMBER.COM

Katharine Golding, who is on the board of the Vashon-Maury Island Heritage Association, said the 11-member board voted unanimously to sponsor the event because they feel something needs to happen at the historical property. Golding, who called the long dispute over the property a “hot political issue and a contentious issue,” emphasized that she didn’t want to point fingers at or make accusations about Island Landmarks. But, she added, she does support the Friends of Mukai’s efforts to see the property transferred into new ownership. Golding will speak at Saturday’s event. “I hope what it does is heighten the awareness,” she said “I think that one of the most important things is that it makes people more aware of this asset we have sitting in the middle of our community. If the Friends of Mukai do prevail, they’re going to need resources to do what needs to be done.” Matthews said she wasn’t entirely sure of the event’s purpose, but she wasn’t happy to hear it was being planned. She agreed that attention should be brought to the property, but thought organizers would do better to work with Island Landmarks on finding a solution for it. “All the people out there who are sensible and want something to happen to this need to work with us,” she said. For years, the historic farmhouse and Japanese garden, purchased more than a decade ago by Island Landmarks, has been at the center of a heated dispute. Critics say, among other things, that the house and garden have both fallen into disrepair and haven’t been accessible to the public, a requirement of public funds used to purchase it. Last fall, a group of concerned islanders who would later form the Friends of Mukai attempted to wrest control of Island Landmarks from Mary Matthews and her husband Nelson Happy, who live part-time

in Texas, and install their own elected board to oversee the property. However, a judge ruled in November that the takeover was not done legally, a decision the group, now a registered nonprofit, is appealing. And earlier this year, Allyson Brooks, a top official from the state Department of Archeology and Historic Preservation, voiced concern about the status of the house, evidence that it had been used as an occasional private residence and what she called Island Landmarks’ apparent failure to live up to the terms of a state grant that helped purchase it. Matthews, on the other hand, continues to deny any wrongdoing on the part of Island Landmarks, saying the nonprofit is maintaining the property. She and her husband have spent their own funds to preserve the house and garden as much as they can, she said, and they are working to see it transferred to a tax-supported agency, ideally the National Park Service. Matthews wasn’t able to give a contact at the National Park Service, but said Island Landmarks needed more support, especially from elected officials, before it could hope to see the property transferred. She said she was skeptical that the Friends of Mukai had a better plan for the site or the resources to care for it. “We have contacts, and we have been working toward that goal,” she said “It would help if we had people on Vashon to support us and help us in that effort. We know they’ve tried to block that effort. National Park Service ownership is a big, political thing.”

“I don’t think it’s enough to say ‘We want Mary Matthews and Nelson Happy gone,’” she added. “I don't think that's right. ... I don’t think it’s polite. I don’t think it’s nice. I don’t think it’s how you treat people.” Haulman said the Friends of Mukai tried to contact Matthews and work with her in the beginning — something Matthews says simply isn’t true — but now the group feels the property has been mismanaged and deteriorating for so long that action needs to be taken as soon as possible. The Friends of Mukai, he said, would also like to see the property owned by a public entity, perhaps King County Parks or the Vashon Park District. The friends group now has more than 100 dues-paying members, and with the recent Washington Trust listing and the large event planned for this weekend, Haulman said it feels as though the group has more support than ever. “It feels like we’re no longer a lone voice in the wilderness,” he said. “It feels like there’s real support around the region and around the state, saying places like Mukai matter. This Place Matters – Stand up For Mukai will take place from 1 to 4 p.m. Saturday on the street outside the Mukai farmhouse on 107th Avenue S.W., one block south of Bank Road. The farmhouse will be open for an open house put on by Island Landmarks from noon to 6 p.m., Friday, Saturday and Sunday, June 7, 8 and 9.

Nelson is big ball of love! He is a large seven-year old chocolate lab who loves to have attention and wants to please. He gets along very well with children and other dogs. Nelson is in good health, active, playful and needs a home where he can get lots of exercise and consistent training. He has been mostly an outside dog so needs someone who will teach him indoor manners - he is a quick learner! $125 adoption feel.

She is easy to entertain and often entertains herself, huge personality & loves the cat tunnel. She grew up around a 3 and 7 year old so she is okay with little kids. She is a lap cat who likes to cuddle. Special adoption rates apply if adopted with her pal Guinness. 5 year old Guinness came to VIPP with his buddy Lizzie - He is very cuddly and loves laser pointers. Guinness is okay with little kids and was relinquished because of apartment rules. He takes a little while to adapt but is very sweet after.
